My Fair Roxane... a musical satire of Cyrano de Bergerac

eBook (PDF), 67 Pages
Price: $2.95
A piano, a well-worn trunk of theatrical props, and an audience's imagination transform virtually any performance space into a musical evening at the Bakery of Poets. The establishment's proprietor and our narrator, Ragueneau, sets the stage for the tale of the fair Roxane as three very different men attempt to woo her. "Ambition and deceit we'll see, romance and battle too. In short, we'll see the stuff of life...and death before we're through." "My Fair Roxane" combines verse, dialogue and song as the musical of Edmond Rostand's "Les Romanesques" ("The Fantasticks") did to weave its intimate magic. While "Cyrano de Bergergac" had a much larger cast than its companion piece, its most memorable scenes are played by a smaller ensemble, placing the human above the heroic and demonstrating Rostand's genius for stinging plot reversals that have helped fuel romantic comedies for more than a century. (includes access to songs)
